Hello Hello!!


November 6th, 2006

people are going to get sick of me saying 'awesome' @ 01:33 am

lastrega:
I'm currently feelin: jubilant jubilant

But OMG the rehearsal tonight was the most awesome thing ever. About 50 of us were out the back of QSAC stadium from about 5pm onwards and once the soundchecks were done, the band came on stage and did the full concerty line-up. Two hours of live U2 while we drank and danced and hooted until we were hoarse. it was just amazing.

I have a few pics, including some of Edge and a really crap one of Bono, here and here. Click to enlarge.

We couldn't see a lot of the stage because of the security, but the view from the screens made up for it. And the sound was brilliant. The setlist went something like:

City of Blinding Lights
Vertigo
Elevation
(a segue into Locomotion)
Until the End of the World
New Years Day
Kite (wonderful new acoustic version)
Walk On
Beautiful Day
Stuck in a Moment
Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own
Love and Peace or Else
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Bullet the Blue Sky
Miss Sarajevo</lj-cut)

Your own, basicly, private U2 concert! Even if you couldn't see the boys, how UBERFANTASTIC for you!!!! And yeah, their sound live is AMAZING. Apparently, it's because of the speakers they use, that very few bands can afford.

The sound was crystal clear, even tonight with the rain pissing down.

And not quite a private concert with 100 people there, but you know, U2 fans are fabulous and we just had the best time. I feel like I've made a hundred new friends.

It was really beautiful. They did the thing with the Declaration of Human Rights on the big screen.

Actually, now my head is clearer, I think Locomotion (the intro bit) led into Elevation. It was very cool.

*Silent screams in glee to self*

THEY'RE GOING TO PLAY KITE!! MOTHERFUCKING YES!!

Hopefully they will in Hawaii too (where I'll be).

That's just fantastic for you. What an awesome experience, even if you couldn't see them up close.

THAT WAS MY EXACT SAME REACTION!

And my exact same follow-up thought (as I'll be there, too).

Kite was fabulous tonight. Last night they did it 4 or 5 times and never really nailed it completely, but tonight it was perfect.
